Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Lincoln's use of presidential power and its application to key decisions are discussed in 14 scholarly essays arranged in chapters focusing on: "The Outbreak of Civil War," "Suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus," "The Great Emancipator," and "Reconstruction." The essays, penned by well-known historians including David M. Potter, Richard N. Current, Kenneth M. Stampp, J. G. Randall, James M. McPherson, John Hope Franklin, and LaWanda Cox, reflect decades of historical interpretations as well as positive and negative perspectives of each official decision. Students will welcome the summary provided at the beginning of each selection. Some entries include opposing viewpoints in sidebars; they stimulate thinking and help readers formulate questions about the opinions and interpretations presented in the main text. A welcomed addition to Civil War collections, this concise volume will be valuable to students looking for more advanced historical study.-Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt.
